The Persians and the Greeks use fencing for practicing fighting with the sword fighting.Ancient Egyptians competed in fencing a long long time ago 1190 B.C.There are no killing people now that the people don't want to be killed and now in the Olympic they put a rubber on the tip of the sward.Today at the Modern Olympics they get points and they get Introduce to all the people that are watching.They turn different light one turn green and one turn red the one that turns green is the one who gets a point and the other one that turns red is the person who doesn't get a point.The swards now much more lighter and people don't get killed they have a rubber thing on the tip of the sward so they don't get killed.Sabre, foil and Epee are all different types of swords foil is a type of sword when you can hit your opponent. When you use the epee you can hit anywhere on your body. Sabre is a sword where you can hit head to hips.
The Olympics of 1896 in Athens in Greece had fourteen countries taking part with most of the athletes from Greece.This first modern Olympic was the largest meeting of international competitors that had ever occurred.The next Olympics held in Paris four years later was the first to allowed women competitors.This time the Olympics where part of a much bigger event and lasted several months.

The gun went off and they ran as fast as they can to the end of the race .Ben Johnson was leading the race all the other people were far behind of Ben Johnson.Ben Johnson he won the word record everyone was happy.
But they found out Ben Johnson was cheating by taking drugs they double ticked that he took drugs.When they found out Ben Johnson took drugs Ben Johnson was shocked and lost his medal.Carl Lewis got the gold medal he was allowed to keep the gold medal because he did not take drugs.and Ben Johnson was not allowed to compete in the Olympics again he was so shocked.
